Nutrition can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. I know it certainly was for me when I started my journey into learning more about how the food we eat impacts our overall life experience.
My journey started when I learned about how the food we eat has the potential to impact the health and well being of our future generations. Talk about important!
This realization made me realize that nutrition is more than silencing the hunger cues and tickling our taste buds. The world of nutrition is much more complex and at first it seemed daunting.
I decided to dedicate my professional career to learning about the science behind the food we eat and how to simplify my learnings to help other people embarking on their journey to live a happier, healthier life.
Healthy eating is fun, interesting, and guess what…it still can tickle your taste buds.
I hope you will join me on my journey!

Let’s take the term holism – the interconnectedness of parts that make up a whole. As Aristotle said, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.
This is two-fold.
Holistic nutritionists look at the individual from a wholistic view – not as separate organ systems, but rather as one complete organism with many parts that work in harmony. Synergism.
When you work with a holistic practitioner, you’re not viewed as different sets of organs. If you experience chest pain, you’re more than your cardiovascular system. If you experience skin issues, you’re more than your integumentary system.
The body speaks to us, and we must know to listen to it in order, not to hide symptoms, but to find and deal with the root cause.
It also looks beyond the physical body and considers the mind, body and spirit.
Holistic wellness entails more than just food as nourishment. It considers mental wellbeing, spiritual wellbeing (think, being fulfilled), social and community, and many other aspects.
When working with a holistic-minded practitioner, we tend to apply food as medicine, and address lifestyle factors to reach our goals. We first give the body what it needs to heal, thrive, and prevent further disease, before opting for pharmaceuticals and other conventional methods.
